Kendrick Lamar‘s anxiously anticipated follow-up to his game-changing sophomore record good kid, mAAd city is finally on its way out the door and we couldn’t be happier. Today the Compton-bred bomber let loose a tweet with an iTunes link that claimed the album’s title would be Untitled, which is more than fitting, being the name of the track he performed (and wrote the night prior to) The Colbert Report. But more important than the album’s title (or non-title, I suppose,) is the fact that it will be arriving on March 23rd via Interscope/Aftermath.
It’s been a longtime coming, but we’ve had plenty to hold us over with the tasty, soul-drenched and anthemic Grammy-winning cut “i” and it’s bitter and brilliant counterpart “The Blacker The Berry.” And soon you’ll have the opportunity to have those cuts and so much more living in your phone and brain, solidifying 2015’s first three months as more impactful than all of last year in music, with the obvious exception of Black Messiah‘s magical return. You can hit iTunes at this very moment to preorder your copy today, just be sure to stay tuned for the ear and eye candy to follow.
